Glad you got it made. I know what I posted was a different brand, but thought it might give you some idea of the implement attachment area. I'll be looking for the build. Have a good one.

Nice job. Looks like it'll get the job done. Wish I had a way to bend thick metal.

Metal was not bent, cut a 2" piece and welded it to the side arms. then the thicker front section was added

I'd have swore you bent the first two pieces. Good job fooling me.

Thanks, no bends just some multiple passes with the wire feed.
It looked like bends to me too. You do great work, but my only concern is you said you have a 1/2" inch hole in the hitch tube? I thought sleeve hitch stuff was 5/8". I didn't say anything before because I thought about the tensioning bolts, but then remembered plowing you want to have all the slack in those bolts. Am I missing something now?
